SunStation is the first 24/7 100% solar power station for home power backup and for charging electric vehicles. Its high-efficiency solar panels produce the maximum power with the minimum footprint. All of the SunStation's power comes directly from the sun, so you no longer have to rely on fossil fuels to provide home electrical backup or to charge electric vehicles. With SunStation, everywhere is a green location!
Unlike other solar charging-stations, SunStation can be used at any time of the day. Thanks to its integrated battery storage you can power your house 24/7 during outages or charge an electric car on cloudy days and even at night. SunStation also outputs power at the highest charging standard- 240 V AC for charging electric vehicles and 120 VAC for home.
Electric cars like the Nissan Leaf, Tesla, Chevy Volt, Ford Focus Electric, Honda Fit EV and Toyota Prius Plugin are growing in popularity and we are seeing more on the streets everyday. Electric car owners will prefer to visit locations that provide easy recharging capability and employees will feel more comfortable buying electric cars if they know they can recharge at work. A great way to attract these green-minded consumers and give your employees that confidence to go green is with the new SunStation™ from Princeton Satellite Systems.
SunStation comes in two models, Single and Double, for single- and dual-vehicle charging. The Single model (above) has four 400 W panels and 14.4 kWh of battery storage. The Double (below) has eight 400 W panels and 24 kWh of battery storage. The Li-Ion batteries are stored underground, do not outgas, and do not need maintenance, so once they are installed you get all the power without any of the headache.
The SunStation can easily be installed in front of your store, in your parking lot, and on top of parking garages and you don't need to tear up the pavement, run heavy wire, or repave! Our installer will pour a concrete base at any convenient location on your property. Once they bolt down the station, you just turn the key and it is ready to go.
Princeton Satellite System monitors the stations 24/7 through a cellular phone connection to make sure that you are getting the best service we can provide.
If you want to sell power back to the grid, SunStation can be grid-tied. If you want to charge for power, SunStation can be configured to be wirelessly connected to our payment network.
As hurricanes Sandy and Irene showed, you can't rely on the grid for all of your electric power needs. SunStation is the ideal backup system for home owners and businesses. The solar panels charge the battery pack and then provide power to your home or business saving you money every day. Our advanced solar panels even produce some power at night! When the grid goes down a transfer switch disconnects you from the grid. The battery pack provides power when there is insufficient power from the solar panels. Our single SunStation can power your lights, refrigerator and keep your heating system running. Our double SunStation provides 24 kWh of battery storage and a 3.2 kW solar array. Larger battery packs can be purchased depending on your needs.
